    Star Raider
  1. I've always wanted a Princess Rescue cart, and every now and then go on a binge of searching for them (right now there'd don't even seem to be any absurdly-priced ones on Ebay!), but something just occurred to me, of the small amount that were ever sold, were any of them actually PAL? I know that the PAL code is available, but was it ever printed to a cart?
  2. G'day all, really looking forward to testing out those new trak-ball games, but accessories are somewhat of a rarity down here in Aus, and I really don't want to pay twice the item's cost again in shipping. Anyone looking to part with a trak-ball in down under? Doesn't need a box, just so long as it works!
  3. Hey, sorry to bump such an old thread (but figured it was better than making essentially the same post), but I'm on a similar hunt for a PAL repro of Ewok Adventure, if anyone has any leads on where they can be found (or made).
  4. Sorry to bump, but it is pretty related to this... Is the Atari 2600 "Star Wars: The Arcade Game" vector graphics? I was under the assumption that it was not, however my stating of this was challenged, and they linked to this article as evidence http://videogamecritic.com/extras/themes/starwars.htm I had interpreted "It's remarkable that Parker Bros was able to squeeze this multi-stage, vector-graphics game into an Atari 2600 cartridge." as simply being a throw-away line complimenting Parker Bro's efforts at getting even close to the feel of an arcade-cabinet game that utilised graphics far beyond the 2600's capability, but I am by no means an expert.
  5. haha yeah, derp, only just noticed that! Out of curiosity, is a repo one actually worth that much?
  6. I don't know much about Air Raid, but I'm pretty sure I heard that a fake one was selling a week or 2 ago. Looks like people are at it again unless I'm very much mistaken. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Atari-2600-Air-raid-repo-super-RARE-/272055880960?hash=item3f57cb4d00:g:iYYAAOSwQTVV8hxy As far as I'm aware Air Raid is supposed to be blue and weirdly shaped, where's this looks more like either one of the repo carts, or just a complete mock-up. Edit: Shoot, meant to post this in the market place, sorry about that!
  7. Ahkay, he had said previously the Classic Gaming Fest, but that would make sense. I don't think an order I'd make in mid-October would arrive before November the 14th, which is when I'd need the other thing by (I live in Australia), so I probably should just order this stuff nowish and the new stuff later on
  8. Is there any update on when these new games will be out? I want to order some other stuff and take advantage of combined shipping, but if it is going to be another month or so I will order the other stuff now and this later...
  9. I was a late comer, and got the 2600, along with a bunch of games in a bundle from ebay (some of which quickly became favourites like 'Space Invaders', 'Asteroids', and 'Pacman' (yes, I actually enjoy THAT pacman), so my 'first' game is not really an interesting answer because it was just really a bit of a lucky dip. The first game that I individually and actively sought out though, would have been 'Missile Command', or possibly 'Joust'.
  10. ... I said that Miniature Golf + was a hack...
  11. Yeah I had only heard bad things about it to be honest, but when I played it I absolutely loved it! I mean, I love real mini golf, and this game had the same sort of feel to it, right down to it being super fun when you're doing well and the most frustrating thing ever when you're not (I even lost my ball at one point ). I just played a game with my mother who doesn't play games at all, and we both had a blast. The graphics are simple, but if you read the title, and then look at the screen you can instantly see what everything is. I'm not really sure what the people who hate the game were expecting from a mini-golf title XD
  12. Hello all, recently I've gotten super into Miniature Golf for the Atari 2600, and I was just wondering if anyone had made any new Mini golf games for the console. This one was pretty early (79?), and the system has been pushed much further since its release. I saw that someone made a hack https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=225which looks pretty cool, but I'm talking about an entirely new game
